The Kuwait Notebook With Khalid Al-Shaikh

Show Ended

Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmed Cultural Centre is presenting for its audience a long-awaited night with the great Bahraini artist Khalid Al-Shaikh, who started off his musical career by singing for Bahraini students in Kuwait during the seventies of the last century. Accompanied by Abdulqader Al-Hadhoud, Mutrif Al-Mutrif, and JACC Orchestra, ‘The Kuwait Notebook’ will be Khalid Al-Shaikh’s tribute to Kuwait, presenting a selection of his most loved songs that defined his years in Kuwait.


Al-Shaikh, who was born in 1958, moved to Kuwait after completing his high school education to study Economics and Political Science and then to Cairo to study at the Higher Institute of Music (The Conservatoire) before returning to Bahrain to teach the oud instrument at the Music Institute and work at the Ministry of Information. He rose in popularity in 1982 when he composed the poem “Shwayyekh” for the prominent Bahraini singer Ahmed Al-Jumairi. The song became extremely famous in the region and outside the Gulf Arab states. In 1983, he dropped his first album "Kullama Kunta Biqurbi", which was followed by several albums, most recent of which was in 2005 titled "Esmi Wa Meeladi". Al-Shaikh’s career has been enriched by many successful collaborations with distinct Arab artists.
